Hyundai's Belgian driver Thierry Neuville held his overnight lead at the Monte Carlo Rally on Friday, a day after a fan was killed when struck by a car.
The 50-year-old Spanish fan was hit by the Hyundai driven by New Zealander Hayden Paddon as he took photos in a banned area.
Monte Carlo is the first leg of the 2017 world rally championship with new regulations allowing more powerful cars on the icy roads.
World champion Sébastien Ogier paid for an error on special stage three, losing 40 seconds as he needed a push from spectators to get his Ford Fiesta going.
Three further stages are scheduled on Friday near Gap in the French Alps.
